BAY CITY, Mich. — Alan R. Gurski has been appointed company president of Gougeon Brothers Inc. by the board of directors, according to a release from the company.
Gurski has a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and worked for 10 years as a commercial construction project manager before joining Gougeon’s marketing department in 2007, the company said.

Gurski has already appointed an executive staff, which includes Vice President of Sales and Distribution Gerald Briggs, CFO Joanne Gradowski, Marketing Director Grace Ombry, Operations Manager Glenn Sinicki and Technical Director Jeff Wright.
Michigan-based Gougeon Brothers manufactures West System and Pro-Set brand epoxies and celebrated its 40th anniversary this year.
